In this peculiar political atmosphere in which the tyrannical arm of the Social Media Gods can strike you down with one swift blow, the ongoing statewide queries into Election 2020 are surfacing in dribs and drabs across the news media landscape. Questioning the outcome of the hotly contested November contest is strictly verboten and violates “community standards” on popular social platforms. Punishment is meted out. News media outlets like Liberty Nation have been issued strikes and suspensions, yet we boldly write on this subject because free and fair elections are critical to our Republic.
Midnight Train to Georgia
The most significant election news of the week comes from Margot Cleveland over at The Federalist. Her article – based on data – is troubling, to say the least:
New evidence indicates that more than 10,300 illegal votes were cast in Georgia in the November 2020 general election. This number will continue to rise over the next several months, potentially exceeding the 12,670 votes that separated Joe Biden and Donald Trump.
While this evidence does not change the fact that Joe Biden is our president, all Americans who genuinely care about free and fair elections and the disenfranchisement of voters should demand both transparency and solutions to prevent a repeat in future elections. This evidence also vindicates former President Trump and his legal team for the related public (and private) comments and legal arguments challenging the Georgia election results.
Cleveland pointed out that while an audit and a recount were conducted in the Peach State, evidence that “nearly 35,000 Georgians have potentially voted illegally” was ignored. His statistical information is based on the National Change of Address (NCOA) database, which the U.S. Postal Service confirms. The data, collected by Mark Davis of Data Productions Inc., unearthed this information having to do with Georgia citizens who had moved from one county to another within the state.
More troubling (if that is even possible) is that when told about the inconsistencies, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger “seemed unfamiliar with this most recent evidence of illegal voting,” according to The Federalist author.
Keystone State Still the Key?
State Senator Doug Mastriano is making a push for a forensic investigation of Election 2020 in Pennsylvania. The Republican lawmaker is trying to get the PA legislature to approve an audit similar to the one conducted in Maricopa County, AZ. This past Wednesday, Mastriano sent letters to several counties, including the all-important Philadelphia County, calling for them to submit to a forensic review. The counties have until July 31 to comply, according to Mastriano’s website. In a letter to his constituency, the chairman of the Intergovernmental Operations Committee enumerated the multiple changes in Pennsylvania’s election laws just prior to voting. In summing it up, the Republican lawmaker wrote, “It would defy logic to assume that an election with the kinds of drastic changes we saw in 2020 was run perfectly with zero errors or fraud.”
Knock, Knock – It’s the State Police
This week Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said her office – working in conjunction with the state police – will be investigating “people who claimed election fraud happened during the 2020 contest.” This request is coming from the Republican-controlled state senate.
Michigan officials are seeking to shut down “profiteering” over what they claim is fraudulent election information. A former state senator hosts a website where users need to cross a paywall to read his content about the election. First Amendment issues do not appear to be a concern for Michigan state authorities.
Speaking of the First Amendment, former President Donald Trump announced a lawsuit against the chief executives of all the major social media Tech platforms this week. According to RT, “the lawsuit seeks an ‘immediate halt’ to social media companies’ censoring of users and ‘blacklisting’ them for political purposes, arguing this violates First Amendment rights.”
What the Murdoch?
And finally – to round out our round-up – Business Insider claims to have gotten its hands on a new book on Donald Trump penned by Michael Wolff. Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency contains a section in which Fox News majordomo Rupert Murdoch “personally gave final approval to the network’s decision to call Arizona for Joe Biden during the 2020 presidential election.”
The Insider’s pull quote from the book is an eye-popper: “Lachlan [Murdoch’s son] got his father on the phone to ask if he wanted to make the early call. His father, with signature grunt, assented, adding, ‘F— him,'” Wolff wrote.
